The Best Way to
Navigate a New City

Who and What You Need to Find Your Way Around New Cities Abroad

When you're on a guided vacation, your best resource is your Travel Director. They already know the ins and outs of each city you visit and can tell you where to go, where not to go, and inform you of the best ways to spend your free time on tour. It's a good idea to ask your Travel Director’s advice before you head out on your own, as they will help equip you with the knowledge, tips, and tricks you need to know to navigate your destinations. 

Download a Few Travel Apps

Once you know where you're headed during your free time, there are a number of terrific travel apps available to download to your smartphone or tablet. The best travel apps for your iPhone or Android smartphone will have a few options for exploration to ensure you find what you need—without getting lost. While some are free, you may find a handful of top-rated travel apps with added features for around $2–$3. A good feature to look for is a digital map that shows you various routes to and from key points of interest, for example, two or three ways to get to and from your hotel to a specific restaurant or location. To get what you want out of smartphone and tablet travel apps, your best bet is to download more than one to address a variety of travel needs.
